Carmelo Domenic Licciardello (January 19, 1956 – February 16, 2021), known by his stage name Carman, was an American contemporary Christian music singer, rapper, dancer, songwriter, television host, life coach, and evangelist.

In November 2011, Carman was the passenger in a car that was struck by a truck from oncoming traffic. The accident took place just outside the church where his appearance was scheduled. He performed the concert, but collapsed afterward and required surgery to repair internal injuries.

He began battling cancer, multiple myeloma, in 2013, and he was given a prognosis of three to four years to live. By early 2014, he said, medical tests indicated his body was free of cancer. He then continued preparing for his Live Across America album and tour. When the cancer went into remission, he attributed his healing to the faith of his fans. He pledged to his Facebook and Kickstarter supporters to begin his “No Plan B Tour” as soon as he regained his health. Later that year he toured the eastern United States.

In December 2017, at the age of 61, he married Dana Morrow. His new family included six stepchildren and nine step-grandchildren. Carman filed for divorce in 2018 and it was settled in 2019.

In January 2020, he announced his cancer had returned. He resumed live concert church tours in June 2020.

Carman died on February 16, 2021, at a Las Vegas, Nevada, hospital after a series of complications resulting from surgery to repair a hiatal hernia, 28 days after his 65th birthday. He is survived by his ex-wife, five stepchildren, and ten step-grandchildren. – Available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License from Wikipedia.
